Severe weather continues to hold together and move our way
From The First Coast News Information Center: A Severe Thunderstorm Watch is in effect until 800 PM EST for all of our Georgia counties. This means conditions are favorable for damaging thunderstorms to move across our area. Florida is not officially in this watch but this could change and we will monitor it closely with your only Live Doppler radar. The main threats will be wind gusts to near 70 mph and possible one inch hail. Remember all severe thunderstorms can and occasionally do produce tornadoes. The main line of storms will arrive in our southeast Georgia viewing area after 4 p.m. and northeast Florida after 6 p.m. Keep an eye to the west. That is where the storms are moving from.

We are also tracking a supercell thunderstorm that has had a history of damaging wind gusts and rotation. This will be near Waycross, Georgia by 5 p.m. as it moves east-northeast at 40 mph.
